Living with Depression (in Thailand)

Mental health has become quite a topic over the past few years as we have seen many people suffering from depressive disorder or other mental health issues taking their own lives (last year it was Chester Bennington of Linkin’ Park as most ‘famous’ example). Even though the news talked about it for a while, by now it’s almost all completely forgotten again and nobody seems to care anymore. Here in Thailand old traditional values and thought processes are still being valued and held high and therefore ‘modern’ diseases such as…

11 female fitness related Instagram accounts to follow in Thailand

Let’s be honest. We all like to see fit people and all of us probably follow at least a few ‘fitness influencers’ or #fitspo heroes.

Location of Cantina Wine Bar & Italian Restaurant Cantina is, unlike its famous counterpart, not located on Mos Eisley, but close to Sanam Pao BTS (not Ari!) station in Bangkok. From there it should be just a rather quick walk or very short motorcycle taxi ride. You can also go there…
